I made a similar thread on this topic before HERE, but there have been plenty of cases on the forums and on reddit where other people have the exact same problem.
Unlike literally every other game on the system, Evolve’s DLC is locked to one account on a console, with absolutely no warning on the store or anything about how the DLC might be locked to one 2K account or anything else. This is a problem for people who share a console between different accounts in a family, for example, like how it would be absolutely stupid for a system to require you to buy two copies of Dragon Age just so you and your brother could play it on the same console on different accounts, and instead lets you buy one copy and maintain your save file and other info separately. Now this was annoying when it just referred to the Digital Deluxe preorder skin, but now that the Monster DLC and the Hunter DLC that I’ve already paid for is on it’s way, it’s a good time to bring up this issue again.
Me and everyone else having this problem aren’t even like the people out there complaining about Day 1 DLC. We’re complaining because we bought the DLC and we can’t use it. I’ve tried talking to support numerous times only to be fed different cookie-cutter responses about “we’re aware of this issue and we will let you know when the team has a solution”, and that’s all well and dandy, but I’m still out twenty bucks with nothing to show for it.
And yes, for those not aware, since once I was accused of “breaking the law” in “piracy”, that as long as if you have a PS4 set as your primary console, any other account playing on that PS4 is able to access all of your games and content, as promised in Sony’s own FAQ linked HERE.
When you activate your system, the following features become available … Anyone who uses your PS4™ system can enjoy games and applications you purchase from PlayStation®Store.
I’ve had no issues whether this was preorder DLC or not on any other game I’ve preordered on the system, including AC4 and 5’s preorder bonuses, Destiny’s preorder bonus, Dragon Age’s pre order bonus, and probably more.
So again, are we going to get the content we paid for or what? Will we at least be allowed to transfer the DLC license to the account of our choice given the oversight? Or am I supposed to accept that I actually threw away my money in trying to support the game?
